How I have missed Thrift Share Mondays! I had taken a long break from thrifting (okay- only a month, but seemed like forevah!) because I had sooo much ebay stuff to list and so many other things going on, but I broke the non thrift streak this week.
Well I am back and linking up with Apron Thrift Girl for the Monday partay.
So happy I did not buy the pyrex primary bowl set I saw in the antique store this past week! I have slowly been collecting the colored beauties and I had the yellow and the red. I found them both at Savers over the last 18 months or so and was pretty skeptical about finding more.
Thursday Mr. Right and I celebrated 10 years married! WoooHooo! A dear friend kept the kids overnight and we had a room at Green Valley Ranch resort. We hit some restaurants, a bar Ben & Jerry’s and an antique mall. In the antique store I saw 4, FOUR different sets of the primary colors mixing bowls from Pyrex. None of the sets were priced under $50, which isn’t too bad of a price but I guess it is really the thrill of the hunt for me because I passed on them even though they make my heat beat a little faster.
I also saw a bunch of vintage board games that I would love to have gotten and challenged the heck out of everyone to beat me at Little House on the Prairie, Bionic Woman or The Waltons. I left those on the shelf too.
Still a touch of regret about that.
So I head to Savers on Friday and there is the lovely lady unloading the cart of new things and on the top is my little beauty green bowl! I almost fell down right there in the Savers aisle!
Then when I made my last sweep through the housewares, I see ANOTHER of the green bowls on the shelf!
Two in one day?
Sadly that one had a chip.
And although I scoured the store like an S.O.S. pad on crack, I did not find the small blue bowl to complete the set.
I DID find this handled pyrex green bowl, which is identical to one my mom has had forever and it makes me happy.
I paid $8 for both my bowls.
They were having a shoe sale that day for card members too. Half off all shoes. Nothing much I like better than half off stuff.
Picked up these Doc Martens for $5. They are headed for ebay today.
Keeping these Danskos as they are just my size!
Also picked up a couple cashmere sweaters from Hugo Boss and Ann Taylor. Keeping those as well.
Hope you all have a fabulous week.
I am seriously thinking of going out today and hunting for the blue bowl!
